Hey, that's pretty neat! A convergence of modern web and an alternative network. Fast and responsive.

I'm not keen on social media, but I've nabbed this: http://cafe.loki/Rambler

One thing I like about Lokinet so far is you can self-host your own SNApps (as I am), and it actually has value-added features like Cafe Loki to bring people to the network as part of the network. If the goal is to move people away from the clearnet, then this gives them something to move to instead of forcing them to just sort of find content on their own like the other networks do.

I love I2P and Yggdrasil, for example, but both lack the 'wow' factor that draws in regular users, which is okay I guess. I'm not for sure what their long term goals are. And ZeroNet has that 'wow factor', but ZSites don't really allow for self-hosted external projects.

Diggin' it so far, though.

I appreciate your comments!!

Indeed, the Café is supposed to be a "white-hat" experience, unlike most TOR like websites. A place for where folk may express themselves freely, explore and learn about privacy tools, surveillance free, censorship free, add free, everything free, with a familiar and comfy GUI clearnet-like experience with great performance.

Naturally, it will initially cater to the Loki (soon to rebrand to Oxen) community, then I suspect other guys, like yourself who appreciate alternative networks, will try it out. Then, a third wave of "normies" who start becoming aware of how bad clearnet really is and seek an alternative.

Not much different from Ramble, really. We're rowing in the same direction!

My hope is it will ultimately become a hub for freedom fighters, oppressed communities, and privacy-seeking folk - to be able to communicate freely, without any illicit activities.
